Description

First a cup of coffee at Family restaurant De Jonge Graaf and then you get on your bike to discover De Kromme Rijnstreek. You pass Fort Vechten, where the Waterliniemuseum is located. You can see the Rijn & Weert flour mill, dating from 1882, from afar. A little further on is Beverweerd Castle. The exterior of this castle has been restored to the condition in which it was completed around 1850. Sterkenburg Castle is a knight court town whose history dates back to the thirteenth century. The characteristic residential towers at Langbroek initially functioned as a defense, but later as a status symbol. From a distance you can see the picturesque Cothen again. The silhouette of this village is defined by the tower of the Catholic Church and by the Oog in 't Zeil windmill.
